How 2012 elections could be suspended

As the election season revs up, bull-slinging, the favorite sport of the criminal class east of the Potomac, is in full bloom. Some of the best zingers we've been treated to lately include:

Che Obama, at the G-20 in France, saying, with a straight face: "I have to tell you, the least of my concerns at the moment is the politics of a year from now." Sure, Barry.

Nancy Pelosi, at a recent press briefing, saying, with a straight face: "If President Obama and the House congressional Democrats had not acted, we would be at 15 percent unemployment." Sure, Nancy.

Joe Biden saying, with a straight face, that if Obama's $447 billion "jobs bill" (i.e., stimulus package) is not passed, there won't be enough police to prevent rapes and robberies. Sure, Joe.

Do they really believe any of this nonsense? No, of course not. But they do know, through experience, that slinging a decorative array of fecal matter against the wall can win over a significant portion of the electorate – particularly those who don't know the difference between the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

But let's put the sleepwalkers aside for a moment. They're pretty much already owned by the left anyway. I'm more concerned about the supposedly conservative media types who are hopelessly trapped in the Beltway Paradigm.

By Beltway Paradigm, I'm talking about those who believe the far-left zealots will ultimately fail because, in the end, the free market will overrule their desires. They are fond of saying that socialism is simply not in the American DNA, thus in the next election voters will root out those on the far left.
